Rebirth of Freedom.

It started at the Soldiers Home.

In Milwaukee

When the NAACP came to town to help out.

When the citizens of Milwaukee
Formed an historic alliance
With the NAACP.

The Milwaukee/NAACP Alliance
Saved the Soldiers Home.

The Milwaukee/NAACP Alliance
Sparked a New Civil Rights Movement
Without Borders.

It started at Milwaukee’s Soldiers Home.
The very soul of Milwaukee,
The beautiful historic City
On a Great Lake.

Womens and Workers Day at the Soldiers Home will be May 1.

The NAACP Rebirth of Freedom at the Soldiers Home
Will be during the Convention, July 9 - 14.

May 1 is Mary’s Day
Mary’s Day at the Soldiers Home
May 1 is St. Joseph Patron Saint of Workers Day.

May 1 is International Workers Day.

Letters of Support

Letters

I propose we honor the archetypal
Mary as Mother of God Day
At the Soldiers Home this May.

The First Day in May.
At the Soldiers Home in Milwaukee.
The Historic City on the Great Lake.

Would it not be a great thing
If the people gathered at the Steps of Old Main,
To give voice to our gratitude,
For one another.

We could invite great speakers
From all of our identity groups
From all of the civic cultures
Of our historic neighborhoods.

We could invite our children to make music
And present poems and plays
Art works and performances,

To mark the arrival of another Spring,
And to explore ways of building
Bridgeworks from the Soldiers Home.

When Milwaukee citizens from across
Town and other borders
Bridged the way to Timbuktu this St. Patrick’s Day,

A great glow was witnessed.

Let’s do the same this May 1 at the Soldiers Home.

This would be a way to prepare the way
For the “Rebirth of Freedom at the Soldiers Home,”
During the National NAACP Convention, July 9–14.

Rebirth of Freedom.
It started at the Soldiers Home.
In Milwaukee
When the NAACP came to town to help out.

Why not?
